BBTB2: Cricut Santa's Coming to Town

Our spirit was renewed at Christmas once the grandkids came along.  The innocence of believing in Santa, the marveling at sparkly decorations, and learning to sing Jingle Bells just melts my heart.  My layout today includes a picture of my granddaughter from a few years ago.  She came over to help decorate my tree.  She was wearing a dress that her mother wore when she was young, and the stuffed Santa was made by my mother.  Thus, this picture deserves a layout of it's own.

You can join in the Christmas fun by linking up your Christmas cards and layouts/projects that include a Santa Cricut cut to our Bitten By the Bug2 Blog HERE:

My vintage feel has lots of cuts on it:

Tree, Santa, Banner, and Title:  Winter Frolic
Snowflakes:  Artbooking, Don Juan, and A Child's Year
Deer: Wildlife
Presents:  Artbooking
Background Frame:  Artiste

BBTB2: Cricut - Santa's Sharing Treats

I made a treat box with Santa's face for our Bitten By the Bug2 challenge this week - which is "Use a Jolly Old St. Nick/Santa cut" on a card or project.   I think I am going to make several of these for favors on the dinner table.  Of course, they will hold chocolate!  (my husband loves the Chocolates of the World from Costco.  I think they are not as good as they were several years ago.

My pie shapped box is from Tags, Bags and Boxes and More and the Santa face is from Simply Charmed (edited) and I added a mustache from the Santa in Doodlecharms. Stickles and ink add the bling.

BBTB2: Cricut - Christmas Time is Near

Well, I finally got a few scrapbook pages done from when my granddaughter was 2.  She's now 6, so you can see how far behind I am.  I have lots of paper and embellishments for Christmas, but I never seem to get them scrapped.  Our Bitten By the Bug2 team has some great Christmas themes for our challenges over the next few weeks, and that helped me get these pictures done.  Our theme this week is "Christmas Trees".  It is the season, thus, my title, and a little old fashioned truck carrying a fresh cut tree in the back.  I managed to get in 3 pictures from an outing of walking about in the neighborhood just before dark.  She really was in awe of the blow-ups.  A fun day.

Our wonderful hostess this week is Janis from Pause, Dream, Enjoy.  Link up your project related to Christmas Trees to our blog - Bitten By the Bug2 - HERE.
